As a business keynote speaker and sports psychologist, I look for great stories-Butler University provides us with one.
Butler University beat Michigan State to reach the NCAA Finals on Monday, April 5. Butler is a cinderalla story and may have won from the home court advantage. Butler is from Indianapolis where the final four was being held. The sport psychology research indicates that basketball has a home court advantage bigger than any other sport. Sure, it was not their schools’ court, but it was close enough.
Home court advantage allows the Butler team to sleep in their own beds, and not travel-a huge advantage-maybe one or two points-and that is all they needed to make history!
